Carbon Girl Gets Drive-By Birthday Greetings

It was a complete surprise to Remi Ray of Carbon when she had a very special parade for her 10th birthday Monday! Around 6:30 pm the city’s weather sirens went off and everyone in town was on alert as all of the firetrucks pulled out of the station (a couple sporting “Happy Birthday Remi” banners on the front)! Locals in their 4 wheelers and other vehicles were staged at Triple T Truckings’ parking lot and fell in behind the firetrucks as they went by. What could have been a disappointing COVID-19 birthday for a little girl was turned into something special by a little city with a lot of heart! Happy Birthday, Remi!
